"If they are relatively healthy, they are going to be there much more regularly than they are at any other health care provider’s office. And when a mother’s depression begins to affect her functioning, she will still get that baby to the pediatrician. Certainly, it would be great if women were seeking out a psychiatrist first, but you’re talking about scheduling another appointment. Here you have a population of women at risk already in a doctor’s office."
